DGDL Exclusive Event: Women that make, create and innovate - part of TODO (Toronto Design Offsite Festival)
Jan 17, 2017
Part of the ToDo (Toronto Design Offsite Festival)
The first of a series, Daily Goods Design LABS POP-UP 1 featured women that are changing the landscape of design through creative uses of materials and technology. The presentations focused on how to design for the other ½ of consumers — yes, that’s right, designs for women!
The audience consisted of female designers, fashionistas, and technology experts which came together to imagine, make and create the future of clothing, accessories, and product concepts for women.
Daily Goods Design LABS Founder Renn Scott kicked off the event with a presentation of female focused trends and insights followed by four talks from 4 women focusing in the areas of design, making, innovation in engineering and technology.
The event wrapped up with a meet-and-greet where the presenters along with any of their team members - designers and engineers present shared their work with the audience.
